CHF can occur from intrinsic or infiltrative myopathy such as:
1) ischemic heart disease,
2) cardiomyopathy, or
3) infiltrative processes such as myocarditis or amyloidosis
CHF can result from excessive workload from:
1) increased resistence to ejection, as in systemic hypertension or aortic stenosis,
2) increased stroke volume due to septal defects or valvular insufficiency, or
3) increased body demands (high output failure) as may occur with thyrotoxicosis, anemia, pregnancy or peripheral arteriovenous shunts.
right heart failure in the absence of left heart disease
cor pulmone
cardiomyopathy characterized by a large heart with dilated chambers and thin, stretched ventricular walls
idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy
myopathy characterized by marked hypertrophy of the left ventricle, usually with a disproportionate increase in the interventricular septum
hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
microscopic findings in hypertrophic myopathy
disarray of myocardial fibers
restrictive myopathy description and causes
ventricular walls excessively rigid. amyloid and endomyofibrosis are causes
most common primary tumor of heart
left atrial myxoma, which can obstruct mitral orifice, embolize, or lead to constitutional symptoms
